Latinos are running the 2015 Golden Globes!

The 2015 Golden Globe Award nominations were announced early this morning at the Beverly Hills Hilton in Los Angeles, and our Latinos also came out to represent! Latino actors and directors are no strangers to Golden Globe snubs, but this year there is an interesting mix of Latino Golden Globe nominees. I was thrilled to see Gina Rodriguez on the prestigious roster for her star role on the CW's hit series Jane The Virgin. The fun telenovela-inspired show has been one of my favorites this year and Gina truly shines. However, it was who wasn't on the nominee list who took me by surprise.

Premios Billboard 2014: The most shocking parts & everything you didn't get to see (VIDEOS)

PHOTOS

Before I get into all the juicy details, let me tell you that Raúl González shined, proving that switching networks was the best decision he could've made. It's obvious that the Venezuelan presenter was ready for more. Plus, the trio made up by him, Roselyn Sánchez and Laura Flores was a total hit. The flow of the show was one of the best I've seen in Hispanic television lately and that's saying a lot, considering I've watched them all. And their attire was fantastic, especially the last outfits they wore. 

But what transpired throughout the night was powerful and unexpected. I danced, I laughed, I reminisced and I cried. A lot, actually... Ready?

jessica

Last night was the MTV Movie Awards and with all the celebs that came out, we couldn't miss it. Like most award shows, there were highlights that were memorable and we just have to talk about! Take for instance Mila Kunis showcasing her baby bump and Jessica Alba butchering a pretty popular young actor's name.

We'll give Jessica some leeway, but I'm sure she won't forget it now--especially after what he did last night!

Grammys 2014: Bruno Mars wins one Grammy + highlights of the night!

Bruno

The Grammys are supposed to be one of the edgier awards shows of awards season, but this year's disappointed in more ways than one. From the lame-ish Grammy Red Carpet dresses (gold, beige, the occasional red) to the performances, I have to confess that it was hard to stay up and watch 3.5 hours of this.

But it is a big night, so we watched! I was also waiting for Bruno Mars to win his multiple Grammys--he was nominated for six! So how did he make out? Well … read on.

Grammys 2014: Our stars & the best looks of the Red Carpet!

PHOTOS

As always, even more fun than the actual awards shows, in tonight's case the Grammys, is the Red Carpet! And as always also, our stars absolutely shined! From Gloria Estefan looking classic and perfect to newcomer Desiree Estrada, who looked amazing in gold and white, it was a treat to see our stars rocking the carpet. Shiny, full-length gowns rocked the night (even pregnant Ciara wore a beautiful gold beaded gown, belly bump and all!), and of course Madonna broke the mold in a black tuxedo and grill ... which were a little out there, but hey. This year, the fashion wasn't as out there as we've come to expect from the Grammys. But I personally LOVED the glitter of the Red Carpet.
